Radiator City?

You could compare Kvinesdal to Radiator City from the Disney movie Cars. There used to be a main road that went through the town, but a highway was built which by-passed it. The difference in Kvinesdal is that the local people celebrated the new highway and now work together to make Kvinesdal a great place to visit. So, if you visit one attraction in Kvinesdal, you will also receive information on other great attractions and activities in the region.

Getting here and around

Car: To get to Kvinesdal from Stavanger, use the E39 and Rv42 which takes 2.5 hours. From Kristiansand or Oslo, use the E39 highway. From Oslo the journey is 5.5 hours, from Kristiansand 2 hours.
